    The Shepherds’ Example

    The shepherds were the first to visit the newborn Savior. Immediately after visiting the baby Jesus, they set a wonderful example for us to follow. To discover what the shepherds did, write the letter that comes in alphabetical order between each pair of letters on the blank. For example, if the combination of letters is AC, the letter B would be written in the space below them, since B follows A and comes before C. (For this puzzle, A follows Z.) Check your answer in the scripture.
